We did try and do our normal fuel consumption test with the Street Magic but due to the tank being hard to drain and us being complete idiots we failed to get an exact number. We can tell you that it’s not stellar and it’s not bad either. Somewhere between 3.2 and 3.5L/100kms would be about where it sits, so about average for an older 50cc machine. The Street Magic was very popular with inner city couriers a few years back and I can see why. It’s cheap, reliable and simply loves to carve up city traffic. The handle bars are quite wide but the bike itself is about as narrow as well…a bulimic super model. If you were to cut the handle bars down a few inches this thing would make any gap in traffic a normal human could fit through.

So who is the Street magic for? This is an easy answer…it’s for idiots. People like me, people who want a crazy little machine that makes you feel like a big kid. You could literally get away with murder on this bike. Nobody takes you seriously on a Street Magic, you look like a child who’s stolen a mini motorbike from a theme park. That my friends is what it’s all about, the Magic is just great fun to ride. It’s also the very first bike we ran around our new test track. We clocked a 41.6 second lap, but we’ll have to wait and see how that stacks up against other 50cc machines. I will say this though…for my money I’d say a tuned up Street Magic would have to be the fastest scooter round a race track…period. We'll know soon.
